Running an E Commerce website? If so, you may have discovered it can be both a blessing and a curse. While increasing sales and attracting new customers through your web store you will also attract more costs, operational challenges if your online shopping cart is NOT integrated with your accounting software or Sage 100 Sage 100 ERP system.

Below are a few signs that will help you determine if it’s time to consider the benefits of an integrated shopping cart with your accounting or Sage 100 ERP system.

  1. Keeping up with online order volume

If your online order volume is growing, it will take a lot longer and a lot more work to pull orders from the website and manually enter them into your Sage 100 ERP system. Saving time in this step is crucial to satisfy your customer and to eliminate redundancy.

  1. Climbing Labor Costs

The most significant benefit of a Shopping Cart and ERP integration is the savings!
More orders requires more resources and more resources increase operational costs. With the integration between your Shopping Cart and Sage 100 ERP system you will eliminate manual resources for entry and processing because data will be communicating 2 ways.
Simply put, you’re working harder for online sales that end up being less profitable because of the cost to process them.

  1. Inventory and Customer Data not in Sync

When integrating Shopping Carts with ERP, much of the focus is on increasing effectiveness, decreasing operating costs, and reducing errors.
But an often overlooked benefit of integration is the sharing and synchronization of data between your Shopping Cart and Sage 100 ERP system.  That means when an order is placed online, inventory in the back office accounting or inventory system is automatically updated and decremented.
The same holds true for customer information and other data. For example if a customer adds or changes a shipping address, that new data is automatically shared and synchronized both online and in your Sage 100 ERP system.
